[cifs-protocol] Questions regarding ACE Ordering Rules

I was running some test against a Windows 2008 server, forest functional level and domain functional level are both 2008.  I created a group via LDAP and provided a security descriptor with ACE's deliberately scrambled - e.g Deny before Allow, Object Specific before Regular. I did not get an LDAP error, the group was successfully created, but the SD looked the way I provided it, that is, not according to the rules described in this section. Can you explain why this happens? What behavior should I expect, is Windows supposed to sort them, return an error, or sort them later, or when a recalculate hierarchy request is sent?

In addition:
What is ACE canonical form?
In the sentence:  "The nest rule is only applied if the previous rule(s) give inconclusive results" - what would constitute an inconclusive result? 

Best Regards,
